I readily admit to being a hotel-snob, but one of my favorite hotels is in my own state. My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel Roanoke at least a dozen times, including last weekend. I'm biased because this is where we stay for VT football games, but the hotel has so much more to offer. The property is very unique - a large Tudor hotel overlooking a small city (where else can you find that?). The staff is incredibly friendly, and the hotel pub is a fun, unique bar experience. The rooms are a bit small, but they are comfortable and they went through an upgrade several years ago. On occasion, the cleanliness seems to be an issue (i.e., room service trays sitting outside of a room all day long), but it seems to correlate with the times the hotel is very busy. Overall, there is an elegance and old world charm to this hotel - with a fireplace, rocking chairs along the front patio, and lots of seating areas tucked around the hotel. And you can't beat the location - a quick covered walkway away from downtown.
I do have to wonder -- for a beautiful hotel this size that has undergone several updates recently - why hasn't a real spa been built?! (In room spa services just don't count)
